    what exactly means mindnumbing??

    Dear Ski,

    what is the meaning of mindnumbing? Leo says something like "boring" ?!

    If that´s true, what is boring, my small progresses, the pics with the details ? What do you want to tell me ? don´t forget, I´m not a native speaker (in english of course :mrgreen:)

    best regards FLU

    In this context, "mindnumbing" means "difficult to comprehend". How you are able to achieve such perfection is unimaginable. Perhaps mind-boggling would be better...And I agree!
